Demi Lovato performed her melody “Anyone” at the 2020 Grammy Awards at Staples Center in Los Angeles Sunday night. She has been cited saying that she composed the song days before her overdose in 2018 as a “cry for help.”
On Sunday night, she was presented by actress and “Little Women” director Greta Gerwig. As the cameras panned to Lovato in the field with her piano player, the singer’s voice broke and she shed a few tears as she tried the melody. In any case, her companions were strong, applauding her on as she cleaned away the tears, made a sound as if to speak and began once more.
She sang with conviction, her vocals shaky in parts, however, she let herself go, belting out honest lines like “I feel stupid when I sing, nobody’s listening to me” and “Why the hell am I praying if nobody’s listening.”
Lovato isn’t nominated for any awards this year, however, this performance is her first since her overdose and the rehab that followed in 2018. She’s been nominated in the past for best pop/duo group performance with “Fall in Line” a year ago and her “Confident” album was nominated in the best pop vocal category in 2017.
